Robin: Sorry, I had to take that call. It was your Uncle Sonny. His little boy is really sick. Thank God you're okay. I don't know what I would have done if something had happened to you or someone had taken you. Daddy would have never forgiven me. I don't think I could have ever forgiven myself. I'm such a bad mom. I don't even know how that could happen. A mom taking off, totally forgetting about her baby. I'm just glad you slept through it. I could have damaged you for life. At least now you, hopefully, won't remember. Anyway, I'm so sorry. I promise it'll never happen again. Do you want to play with that? Okay. Are you all right?
Patrick: Hey. Just don't say a word. I know exactly what happened.
Rebecca: And of course, the more you wish people would just ignore it, the bigger deal they make. So everyone kept asking me how I felt and how much it must have hurt.
Lucky: Nikolas, hey, you want to see my new scar?
Nikolas: Hey -- sorry, I realize how this may look, but I'm not following you. Really, I'm not.
Claudia: Hi, this is Monica Quartermaine. I'm calling to check on my grandson Michael Corinthos. He had some tests that were scheduled for today. I just wanted to see how he's doing, but -- I'll call back.
Claudia: How did it go with Michael?
Sonny: I have a feeling that you don't need me to tell you that.
Patrick: Are you cold?
Patrick: Look, I know you're probably furious with me, and I don't blame you.
Robin: You don't?
Patrick: No, I should have never went and discussed our personal matters with Matt.
Robin: Oh, well, I'm not thrilled about it.
Patrick: I should have never mentioned postpartum depression, Robin. Look, all I can say for my own defense is that I've never had a baby before, obviously. And I've never even known one on a personal level. So as much as I look like I'm calm on the outside, inside I'm freaking out a little bit here. But I'm trying to acknowledge it, and now that I am aware of it, I'm going to try and be better.
Robin: I'd appreciate that.
Patrick: I know I don't say it enough, but I'm in awe of you. You're an amazing mother and a brilliant doctor, and we're both going through some of the same changes. I don't want to be the problem, okay. I want to try and help.
Robin: You do help me.
Patrick: Not by whining to Matt and trying to force you into treatment for an illness that you don't have either.
Rebecca: Honestly, it didn't cross my mind that you were following me.
Nikolas: Oh, good, because I told you I wouldn't, and I'm a man of my word. And running into you here was completely accidental. I assure you.
Lucky: Hey, you know what -- lighten up. We're here. You're here. It happens.
Rebecca: No, no, no. Nikolas has a right to be defensive. We got off to a weird start. He had a rather intense reaction to my resemblance to Emily, and I treated him like a stalker. The good news is that we're adjusting, right? So much so that you don't have to run screaming in the opposite direction whenever we show up in the same place. When we live in Port Charles, our paths are bound to cross.
Nikolas: Thank you. That's very kind of you to say that.
Lucky: It was awkward at first, okay. But you guys are making progress and able to talk about it now.
Nikolas: So what happened to your face?
Lucky: Yeah, I kind of ran into a fist.
Rebecca: I guess this is where I'm supposed to say, "You should see the other guy," right?
Lucky: Which is why I'm here, to get some stitches, so that was not my idea.
Rebecca: Yeah, your brother is way too macho for first aid.
Lucky: Yeah, but hey, why don't we all grab some dinner together?
Rebecca: But we were going to go to that club, remember?
Lucky: Right. Yeah, Rebecca, you know, being new to the area, I kind of volunteered to take her to see some live music.
Rebecca: You're welcome to join us.
Nikolas: No, no, no. Another time, perhaps. You two enjoy yourselves, okay. Good night.
Winnifred: I called in the arrest and the local authorities. They're on their way.
Jason: Good. We need to talk. Can you cover that?
Sam: Yeah, I've got it.
Maxie: What were you thinking, Spinelli? You had me worried sick, venturing out into cruel world without anyone to protect you.
Spinelli: The priestess was accompanying me.
Maxie: That doesn't make me feel any better.
Spinelli: I stood up for myself when my manly prowess was put to the test.
Maxie: Really, how?
Spinelli: I jumped on one of the evil doers.
Spinelli: And he hurled me into the wall like a crash-test dummy, but all was not lost. See, I bought enough time for Stone Cold and his merry band to come to the rescue.
Maxie: You should have never been put in the position to need rescuing. And the fact that you were is all Winnifred's fault. She convinced you to go on the run with her, and then -- now she's trying to take credit for getting you out of the trouble that she put you in. I really don't like her.
Jason: Spinelli's on the FBI’s wanted list, right. If the cops come here, they're going to take him into custody. I don't think they're going to let him out a second time. Then they're going to come after me for aiding and abetting. They're going to name you as an accomplice. You might lose your job. You might go to prison. Is that what you want?
Winnifred: Absolutely not.
Jason: Okay, then it has to look like you caught these art thieves on your own.
Winnifred: But that's not true. The Jackal, you, fair Samantha, and the well accessorized, but mostly worthless minimista -- you foiled the robbery in tandem and credit has to be distributed properly.
Maxie: This girl's head is as thick as her glasses. Jason's right. None of us can be associated with what happened here today. And as much as I hate the idea of you basking in the glory of the situation that you kind of created for Spinelli -- whatever. You're just going to have to step it up.
Winnifred: Well, if my superiors think that I just went off on my own, insubordination is going to trump any success I claim.
Maxie: Well, that sounds like a personal problem to me.
Spinelli: Look, I'm indebted to the priestess for her unquestioning willingness to join me in my noble quest, but circumstances have altered our course. We must accept Stone Cold and fair Maximista's wise council.
Winnifred: I'll take it from here.
Winnifred: So, to reiterate, I'm agent Winnifred Leeds of the FBI, and I'm placing you under arrest. And I mean it this time.
Claudia: That's an odd thing to say. Why wouldn't I need you to tell me what's going?
Sonny: Because you should be able to look at my face and know. Test failed.
Claudia: I'm sorry, Sonny. I'm so sorry.
Sonny: Michael's not a candidate for the procedure that could have brought him back. You know, I knew it was going to turn out like this. I fought it. Being positive is not easy for me.
Claudia: How's Carly doing? Is she okay?
Sonny: Carly's rock solid. And when it comes to her children, she's a warrior, and I admire that. Watching Carly these last few weeks -- I'm on her side. We can't give up. We have to keep fighting for our son.
Claudia: This is going to sound completely unrelated, but it all ties in. Okay, so bare with me just for a minute here, all right? We live on this great big, beautiful estate, and what do we use? Maybe five rooms at the most. We never have company over.
Sonny: Where are you going with this?
Claudia: I think that we should throw a party.
Sonny: A party?
Sonny: So I pour my guts and heart out to you right now, and you go, "Let's throw a party"?
Claudia: I asked you to hear me out.
Sonny: No, I don't want to hear you out. You've been spending too much time alone. You want to try out your hostess skills on Port Charles high society? You're not going to get anybody to come in here, even if you put a gun to their heads.
Claudia: I don't care about Port Charles high society, Sonny. I don't care about the Cassadines and the Quartermaines looking down their noses at us, pretending like their house isn't made of glass. I'm talking about our people. I'm talking about a party for business reasons and for Michael.
Jax: No, if you really don't want to this, you don't have to.
Carly: No, of course I want to do this. I'm the one that's been the divorce the whole time.
Jax: It's just that you don't seem so enthusiastic about it.
Carly: I am thrilled. Thrilled. But you want me to be honest, right? That's what we're doing. We're supposed to be honest.
Jax: Yes, that would be good.
Carly: Okay. What I just went through was really hard.
Jax: I know.
Carly: And I'm still trying to figure out how I maneuver my way without Michael. And I'm supposed to figure out how to deal with that and how to deal with him not being around. And I don't know if I can accept that.
Jax: You never should.
Carly: I made a promise to myself and to Michael that I wasn't going to put him through this endless series of experimental tests. But that doesn't mean that I'm giving up hope, you know. I'm not. Who knows? One day he could still wake up. And I want you to be honest with me. I want you to be able to look at me and tell me if you think that I'm going to drive myself crazy with this. If you don't believe me, I need you to tell me.
Jax: I think hope combined with love can sometimes equal miracles. I miss him, too, you know. I couldn't love Michael more if he were my own.
Carly: I know. He'd be so happy that we were getting back together. He adored you. He really did. He loved you. And he'd want us to focus on the future and not get bogged down by the pain of the past. And I know that I've done that. I've been so guilty of that. It hasn't been fair to Morgan. It hasn't been fair to you, and I'm sorry.
Jax: Fair doesn't enter into it. We do what we can, as much as we can. And then we do more or better.
Carly: I want to do that, you know. I want to be better. I want to be a better mom. And I want to be a better wife to you. I love you.
Jax: I love you, too.
Robin: I'm not going to lie. It upset me when Matt showed up and accused me of having post-partum depression. I probably overreacted. You have every right to confide in your brother.
Patrick: Yeah, that's what I wanted it to be like, but I just kind of needed to hear myself think. And I thought I could trust Matt, but the first thing he did was go running to you, assuming that you wanted his advice. I didn't mean for that to happen. I didn't mean to upset you. I was kind of thinking things through and wasn't necessarily saying or telling Matt everything that I believed to be true.
Robin: Well, you were right. Not about me having postpartum depression, but about the fact that I need to spend more time with our daughter.
Patrick: Yeah, how was your day?
Robin: We had a great day, actually. Yeah. We went to the park, watched the people on the paths and the kids in the playground. It was really great seeing the whole new world through Emma's eyes.
Carly: So where do you want to renew our vows?
Jax: Well, I think that's definitely a decision the happy couple should make together.
Carly: Yeah, that's why I asked you.
Jax: Well, what sings to you? I mean, do you want to go to a tropical island, beach, on top of a mountain?
Carly: How about Rice Manor? Rice Manor.
Jax: That's were we were before. Yes.
Jax: Rice Manor.
Carly: It's the most beautiful place in town for a wedding.
Jax: There's plenty of room for about 100 of your closest friends.
Carly: Yeah. Me -- Miss popularity.
Jax: That's right -- Miss popularity.
Carly: I was thinking a private ceremony.
Jax: You mean just us?
Carly: Yeah, just us. We could get married in the conservatory instead of the ballroom. It's beautiful there. They have those beautiful, big French doors.
Jax: Yeah, yeah, it sounds romantic and intimate. It limits the potential for drama.
Carly: No unwanted surprises.
Jax: Right. And no appearances from long lost lovers.
Jax: And no Jason as your best man. That's the best part.
Carly: And no Alexis dripping contempt and disapproval.
Jax: I like it.
Carly: What do you say we seal the deal?
Jax: I say I'll race you to the car.
Jax: I'm going to catch you.
Sonny: You lost me. Where does Michael fit into this cocktail party you want to have?
Claudia: It's really quite brilliant if you follow me for a second, okay. We invite the five families.
Claudia: The people that are most closely associated, right.
Claudia: The heavy hitters with the deepest pockets. Then I drop not-so-subtle hints that we would be appreciative and always remember any quiet donations to the Michael Corinthos Fund. Then we role out the new order, and we put on a show.
Sonny: The feds will be all over a Corinthos cocktail party.
Claudia: So? So what? So what are they going to do? It's not illegal to throw a party, federally or otherwise, so let them sit out there with their cameras and their walkie-talkies. They can't touch us. Meanwhile, it will cement your position as solidly in charge. And anyone who doubts it -- all they have to do is look across the room, see Jason, clearly your number two, and happy to take orders from you.
Sonny: And you get to flaunt your position of power to anyone that matters on my arm, on my team, with your big-ass ring.
Claudia: Like I said, it's kind of brilliant.
Winnifred: The stolen painting has been recovered. No damage done. The suspects are Mirandized and secured according to the tenants of the agency field manual, and a copy of my report will be forwarded to your office upon my return to Port Charles. So my job here is done.
Cop: Not so fast. The feds called. We're supposed to hold you here.
Maxie: You are going to love this place. It deserves every single one of those five stars. The service is incredible. The food is amazing. And the spa is to die for. In fact, that's the first thing I'm going to do, is book a facial because adventure is hell on moisture balance.
Sam: We just didn't ask you to book a hotel based on amenities. We really wanted the best place to be able to hide Jason and Spinelli.
Maxie: I know. It's like hiding in plain sight, but that doesn't mean we can't take advantage of being here.
Jason: We need to keep a low profile.
Maxie: Try something new for a change, Jason. Don't be a kill joy. Spinelli, you should get a sea salt scrub because that's amazing for stress. And, Sam, you should get a hot stone massage. That will melt the tension right away. Actually, Jason, I'm not really sure what treatment would help you. A deep tissue would probably break the poor therapist's fingers off. I can't see you sitting still for a seaweed wrap. So maybe you can eat, and we'll go to the spa. And then we'll head back to Port Charles rested and rejuvenated.
Jason: Spinelli's not going back.
Patrick: It makes me very happy to think of you guys bonding at the park and having a great time.
Robin: I thought it would.
Patrick: How long were you guys there for?
Robin: I don't know. A couple of hours.
Patrick: Yeah? Did you guys eat some lunch?
Robin: No, we just walked around the ponds, and I put her in the swings.
Patrick: Her first swing?
Robin: Yeah, well, I didn't push her very hard. I just kind of held her and rocked her for a little while.
Patrick: Did she like it?
Robin: She loved it. Remember?
Patrick: Hey, I'm sorry I missed your first swing. But we're going to have many more days like one, aren't we? Just the three of us.
Elizabeth: Hey, Drake family.
Elizabeth: Oh, my goodness, Emma. You're still awake.
Patrick: Yeah, she had a very long day.
Robin: Yeah, she's sleepy.
Elizabeth: Wow. Hey, by the way, thank you for helping me get that lunch order out the door earlier.
Robin: It was nothing.
Elizabeth: Those women at the charity lines would have revolted if I'd shown up a minute past one.
Patrick: Look who's here. Aunt Elizabeth is here. We were just commenting on your big adventure today. You probably need a nap, don't you?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I could use one of those right about now.
Robin: Why? Are you having trouble sleeping?
Elizabeth: No, I'm fine. In fact, I'm pulling an eight-hour shift at Mercy until General reopens.
Patrick: Hey, don't get any ideas. You're the best O.R. nurse we have. I don't want to lose you.
Elizabeth: Don't worry. General Hospital is my home. Oh, and there's my date. I will catch you guys later. Hey.
Elizabeth: You sounded a little stressed on the phone. What's going on?
Nikolas: I'm a serious guy. That's who I am. It's in my nature. You should know that about me by now.
Elizabeth: A little touchy are we?
Elizabeth: I think I can guess what this is about.
Nikolas: Well, it's about the General Hospital renovation. I need a nurse's point of view on where and how the improvements should be made. So if you just give me your wish list, I can wave a wand over it or something.
Elizabeth: Okay, well, we can do that, or we can just jump to the part where you tell me why you really wanted to see me.
Robin: I totally spaced about running into Elizabeth earlier. I guess going to the park and the whole magnificent part of the day just kind of took over and erased the ordinary.
Patrick: Well, come here. I have an idea.
Robin: Okay, what?
Patrick: I still owe you dinner at Chez Loire, don't I? I was hoping I could pay up tonight.
Robin: Okay, what about Emma?
Patrick: We'll call Judy and see if she's available, assuming you want to go.
Robin: Sure, I'd love that.
Patrick: A nice, romantic, grown-up dinner. I think that's the least I could do for upsetting you today.
Jason: You see, the basic situation hasn't changed. The feds still have enough evidence to arrest Spinelli anytime they feel like it. Now what has changed is they could call him a flight risk. If Rayner were here, he would take you into custody right now.
Maxie: Doesn't it help that we just broke up a huge art heist and gave the feds a thief that they couldn't even catch?
Sam: No, unfortunately, it doesn't.
Jason: I feel the best way to keep him out of prison is to get him out of the country.
Maxie: I think that's a terrible idea, unless you're planning on relocating, too?
Jason: No, I'm going to set Spinelli up, and I'm going to come back.
Maxie: Then what? Spinelli is forced to fend for himself in some foreign country? He won't even last a week.
Spinelli: Okay, I must protest --
Maxie: And even if by some stretch of the imagination, Spinelli is able to take care of himself, as soon as you get back in town, the feds are going to arrest you for -- let's see, we have obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting, helping a fugitive across state lines or whatever.
Sam: Look, nobody likes this, Maxie. But if you can't get on board with the program then you're going to have to come up with a solution. What do you say? Do you have a better idea of how we're supposed to hide Spinelli from the feds?
Claudia: Look, everyone knows all about your attitude toward women and business. They're going to expect you to dismiss me and relegate me to the role of dutiful wife passing out hors d'oeuvres and excusing myself at the end of the evening so the men can talk strategy.
Sonny: Like you're so easy to control.
Claudia: You're not going to do that, are you?
Sonny: Do what?
Claudia: Treat me like my father did and dismiss me, embarrass me, and act like I don't matter in front of everybody.
Sonny: I would never do that.
Claudia: Oh, come on.
Sonny: No, I mean, you're a terrific trophy wife.
Claudia: I'm not sure how to take that.
Sonny: Well, I mean you got pedigree. You're a Zacchara, Anthony’s daughter. You got vital contacts and inside knowledge into how the organization works. Plus, you're not hard to look at, right?
Sonny: And I'm sure every guy at the party is going to be wondering what it's like to throw you over a table. But that's not going to happen because you're with me.
Claudia: Wow, you know, if you're not careful, I'm going to start thinking you enjoy having me on your arm.
Sonny: Oh, I do. If it makes me appear more powerful and well-positioned, hey -- if you want to put together a party that solidifies that I'm the leader and that we're a couple and the most important part, if it benefits Michael's foundation, I'm looking forward to it.
Claudia: That was a good answer.
Jax: You look exhausted.
Carly: You need to work on your bedside manner. You should say, Carly, you look amazing -- can't wait to ravage you.
Jax: Well, you're always the most beautiful woman in the room.
Carly: Thank you.
Jax: And I can't wait to ravage you. You know what? I'm going to feel the same way when you're 80.
Carly: Quit while you're ahead.
Maxie: Why is it on me to come up with a plan? I'm in fashion, okay? That makes me a little under-qualified compared to the career criminal here. Isn't this your area of expertise? Shouldn't you come up with another alternative for Spinelli besides dragging him to some foreign country away from everything he knows and loves?
Jason: If I thought there was another way out, I would take it.
Maxie: There has to be.
Spinelli: Unfortunately, there isn't. The Jackal has no one to blame but himself. It's because of my unmitigated hubris that I was caught red-handed by the federal ones. Stone Cold has gone above and beyond to secure my freedom, but I will no longer accept one more act of sacrifice. I'm resigned to my fate, though it deeply grieves me to be separated from my fair Maximista and live a life of exile in obscurity. Perhaps I'll find the meaning of life.
Maxie: This is your fault. You were supposed to protect him.
Jason: You're right. I was selfish. All I did was look at what Spinelli could do for me, and I let things get out of control.
Spinelli: Stone Cold is not at fault.
Jason: Just stop! Stop. Okay, at least let me own what I did. I didn't protect you like I was supposed to. And that's what I'm trying to do right now. I'm trying to set you up at a new place, surround you with people that you can trust. Give you everything you need so you can be safe.
Maxie: What about me? While you were planning the rest of Spinelli's life, did you give one thought to what I'm supposed to do?
Maxie: You did this to me. I didn't need you, Spinelli. I didn't even ask for you. But every single time I turned around, there you were -- until I started to expect you and look forward to you being there. You made me depend on you, and now you're going to leave me just like the rest of them. That's fine. No, no, no. I'm going to be the first to walk away. Have a nice life.
Rayner: Agent Rayner, FBI. I'll take it from here.
Winnifred: Agent Rayner, this is most --
Rayner: What, Agent Leeds? What would you call it?
Winnifred: Most unexpected.
Rayner: Well, it was a big surprise for me, too. Here I am in sunny Los Angeles, enjoying a well-deserved, long-overdue vacation -- visiting my daughter, who between her work and mine, I haven't seen in over a year. Suddenly, the phone rings. Imagine my shock and dismay when I'm told that Agent Winnifred Leeds, who led me to believe she was on leave because of a health issue, is instead caught up in the middle of an attempted art heist!
Winnifred: Okay, I can explain if you let me just --
Rayner: Lying to a superior? Negligence, unauthorized entry, unauthorized use of a firearm. A firearm, Agent Leeds? When did I miss the part where you became a field agent?
Winnifred: Well, I am trained, and I go to a shooting gallery three mornings --
Rayner: You are a systems analyst assigned to my task force. Your job is to pursue leads on criminal investigations from behind your desk.
Winnifred: Yes, sir.
Rayner: Not to go off willy nilly, dragging my department into a jurisdictional issue. But instead, doing what you were asked to do -- cyber surveillance on felon Damien Spinelli. And you had better pray to God that he doesn't show up missing. Because if you think this is pissed off, you haven't seen pissed off!
Nikolas: Look, I feel ridiculous even admitting this. I have no claim on Rebecca. I have no say on who she makes friends with.
Elizabeth: You saw her with Lucky.
Nikolas: You, too?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I did. Lucky said that Rebecca wanted to become more familiar with the town, and so I encouraged him to do whatever he wanted.
Nikolas: I see.
Elizabeth: I realize now that wasn't very considerate of your feelings.
Nikolas: Well, I don't get to have feelings on this. At least that's what I'm trying to make myself get, you know? I'll never be able to be as easy as Lucky is with Rebecca, and I'm certainly not at the point, if it even exists, where I can look at her and not see Emily. You tell me on what planet do I have the right to be jealous if she prefers his company over mine?
Lucky: Hey, you ready to get out of here?
Rebecca: No, wait a second. I want to see.
Lucky: Are you serious?
Rebecca: Yeah, I'm serious.
Lucky: Do you even know what you're doing?
Rebecca: Yeah, I think so.
Lucky: No offense, I mean, you're an x-ray tech, not even a doctor.
Rebecca: I know enough to know that it's got to hurt.
Lucky: Well, I got a shot. I can't even feel half my face.
Rebecca: That's probably a good thing.
Lucky: Does it meet your approval?
Rebecca: Yeah, your doctor did an excellent job.
Lucky: I'll be sure to pass it along.
Rebecca: Shall we?
Lucky: Honestly, I was kind of thinking about Nikolas. You know, I think he needs a little cheering up.
Rebecca: So you think Nikolas is upset because what? He saw us together?
Lucky: No, not upset. He's just kind of struggling with it.
Rebecca: He seemed fine to me.
Lucky: Well, yeah, he's kind of distant, you know? And sometimes he gets that way when something's really bothering him.
Rebecca: So, I see. The big problem being my unfortunate resemblance to Emily. Look, I get that you're concerned about your brother, so if you think that taking me out is going to add to any weirdness, then consider yourself off the hook.
Lucky: What if I don't want to be off the hook?
Singer: Look into your eyes you see through my disguise once I realize I'm falling for you based on what I show we're on a foreign road and everything we know has led us nowhere but we keep trying we keep pushing away keep asking if there's still time we keep trying we keep pushing away keep asking if there's still time
Spinelli: Maximista, wait.
Maxie: No, you know, I don't even know why I'm so upset. I should be shouting from the rooftops right now that I'm free. No more pathetic Spinelli following me around for a crumb of attention. You know, you're really annoying, Spinelli, and it's a drag.
Spinelli: Believe me, I am painfully aware of the burden my friendship causes the ones I love. Just yet another reason for me to leave. But in my absence, it is my most ardent wish that Maximista achieves all her goals and dreams.
Maxie: Spinelli, how clueless are you? My hopes and dreams? None of that means anything if I don't have you. Don't you know me well enough by now to know that I didn't mean any of those things I just said? I only said them to you because I was scared that I'm going to lose you. Yes, it's all about me, because I'm selfish and self-centered and self-involved -- all of those "self" words. But you are my essential person. And of course, I want you to be safe, but more than anything, I want you to be with me. Because I love you, Spinelli. I'll love you forever.
Sam: Maxie had a point. Between the two of us, we should be able to come up with a better way to protect both Sonny and Spinelli.
Jason: Do you have any ideas?
Sam: I'm getting one, okay? All right, just listen. The feds -- they're sitting on a lot of evidence against Spinelli, right?
Sam: Okay, Jason, if we can get to that and destroy it, then they have no leverage against you, and the case with Spinelli disappears.
Jason: Are we just going to stroll into the FBI evidence room?
Sam: Well, we wouldn't have to if we had access from the inside.
Winnifred: I realize that you are rightfully irritated with me, but --
Rayner: Irritated? A piece of advice, Agent Leeds. At this point, don't say anymore. Trust me.
Winnifred: I suppose no explanation can mitigate the damage that I've caused. So I'll clear out my locker on Monday morning.
Rayner: You don't have a locker.
Winnifred: That was metaphorically speaking. I meant my desk, of course.
Rayner: Keep that. You're going to need it. Miraculously, your little escapade saved a ten million dollar painting and busted a ring of art thieves. They were very impressed with you at the bureau.
Winnifred: They were impressed with me?
Rayner: Oh, yes, you are the topic de jour at the bureau. Don't get used to it. It changes fast.
Winnifred: Am I to understand that my employment has not been terminated?
Rayner: Not only are you not going to be fired, you're going to get a commendation and a promotion with the requisite bump in security clearance.
Matt: Hey. I was going to call you.
Patrick: Yeah, what's up?
Matt: Well, I had done some thinking about our last conversation. And although I had good intentions, I might have overstepped -- probably overstepped with Robin.
Patrick: Not "might have," Matt. You did. But in some way you actually ended up helping.
Patrick: Well, your little indiscretion opened up the door for Robin and I to have a conversation -- an adult conversation, husband-and-wife/parent conversation. Anyway, she ended up telling me about her day and how she spent the time with Emma at the park. And something she said stuck in my mind. She mentioned that she was on a swing holding Emma, and I just love that image of a mother and daughter just stuck in that moment -- just being together.
Matt: So what I'm hearing is -- you want to desperately believe that Robin's okay.
Patrick: Yes, of course, I do. The alternative is that she's not in control of her emotions, which could be dangerous for her and obviously for Emma.
Matt: So even if there is the most remote possibility -- very remote that Robin might have some issues, don't you think it's worth looking into?
Patrick: Matt, listen to me. I am looking into it, all right? I'm not seeing any signs of any problem. The woman holding her child on the swing going back and forth, that woman's not suffering from postpartum depression. Look --
Matt: Patrick, I don't --
Patrick: Matt, I'll tell you what I am going to do. I'm going to spend more time with my wife, the two of us. So if you really want to help out, you can take my rounds for the evening. We have dinner reservations at Chez Loire.
Matt: I've been meaning to get there. I hear it's great.
Patrick: It's a great restaurant. It's our favorite. We're going to have a nice, romantic dinner, just the two of us. And nobody is going to mention postpartum depression.
